The Hummingbird Bakery

“If you buy your dairy at the supermarket, the butter aisle can seem a baffling place. However, the margarine-versus-butter debate is quite straightforward if you are a baker: no quality cake is ever made with anything less than honest, quality-made butter.”

A great meal starts with great ingredients.  And Hummingbird Bakery makes it clear they are committed to creating superb cakes, cheesecakes, whoopie pies, brownies, and cupcakes for a discerning audience. (though i doubt they can rival Kaitlynn Reichert’s cheesecakes in Brunswick, MO)

There are even cookbooks you can buy if you want try you hand at recreating their lovelies at home.  However, i have seen a few of them posted online by other people.  For example, the frosted brownie i enjoyed, here’s the recipe, but I’m not home to try it yet.

Three convenient locations, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Mall, and Citywalk Dubai as well as delivery and custom care.

Individual treats generally priced between 13 and 18 dirhams (AED) which translates to about $3.50 to $4.90. My frosted brownie was 15 dirhams.

Beach and Khalifa

Jessica has frisbie practice first thing this morning, so it’s off to Palace Beach on the Persian Gulf for this clan.  A popular beach for families and campers, though it offers no amenities, including toilets!
